Looking for somewhere new to wet your whistle this weekend?
Nestled in the middle of Barrack Street alongside Tom Barry’s, Pigalle has long been one of our favourite spots for drinks in Cork.
Now there’s even more reason to head up the hill; the bar has had a makeover, complete with cool new branding, a fresh new menu and a tasty line-up of cocktails.
The menu features a tasty choice of affordable-but-fancy bar snacks, from an Oysterhaven oyster served nude or with hot sauce (€2.50) to buckwheat and rosemary crackers with Knocklara cream cheese (€4) and beef dripping chips with house ketchup (€4).
In the coming weeks the team will be adding some mouthwatering mains options, including a charcuterie plate, buffalo croquettes, or an onglet steak with chimichurri and chips, all between €9 – €14.
Among the new drinks to try at Pigalle Bar & Kitchen is the Prospearity, a blend of Blacks Irish Gin, made in Kinsale, and a homemade pear and rosemary cordial and the Thymes Arrow, an herbaceous twist on a Pisco sour.
Beer drinkers have a fine choice of interesting brews, including a plain porter from Porterhouse, Big Bunny from Kinnegar, and a Hefe Weissbier from Weihenstephaner.
There’s a weekly vegan supper in the offing too, so keep an eye on their Facebook events page to book your table.
